STOP THE PRESSES!
This contest isn’t offically over just quiet yet… Well on a scale of 0-100 it’s about 99% offical, but 5 days still remain until the offical end of the 2007-2008 contest on April 30th. With that being said we are comming to the end of the road on the closest contest ever in goldensnowball history. Only 5.3 inches seperate Buffalo, Rochester, and Syracuse right now. The last time the contest was this close was all the way back in the winter of 1977-1978 when Syracuse edged out Buffalo by 6.9 inches and Rochester by a mere 0.3 inches.
Anyways the reason for this post… The last two days of this year’s contest… the forcast calls for.. you guessed it some of the white stuff MAYBE! While it’s about a 99.9% probability nothing but a trace, if that, will fall there is still that one in a million chance Buffalo could sneak something out. I will not confirm or deny reports of one last ditch snowdance occuring this weekend in the Buffalo area. I know I might get some negative comments on this but, I would love for one more snow to finish one of the best seasons in golden snowball history, it’s been a heck of a year and an awesome contest this season!
Even if we don’t get any snow it’s gonna be a cold one next week. So any of you early season gardeners who put any tender plants out already should pay attention to the NWS as at the least frost/freeze conditions are somewhat likely in the Monday – Thrusday time period this week.
